Evaluate Your Wine Grape Planting Material Before Planting

First Paragraph:
Spring is the best time to plant new grapevines in New Jersey. The soil is warm and moist enough to support early growth and the vines have plenty of time to get established during the first growing season. The best way to begin ensuring that you have good, healthy and productive grapevines is to source planting material from nurseries that provide clean materials or certified vines. Planting material from nurseries that follow quality assurance protocols reduces the chances of getting diseased or weak planting material1. Once your order of vines arrives you must ensure that your planting material is healthy enough to avoid problems after planting.
